    I don’t understand the overrated white dudes site at all. Is it a parody of something? I don’t get what I’m missing because on the surface it’s pretty hard to claim that Bill Gates or Lewis Caroll are “overrated”.

    There are plenty of “overrated” people on this planet, currently and historically, but I just don’t understand that choices of pretty much anybody included there. If this is supposed to have some political charge, wouldn’t it make a lot more sense to include, say, Christopher Columbus. Now there’s an overrated white dude.
